Heroes - Prince Adam

:rose: I am honoured to present to you all the newest addition to my Disney Heroes Collection: Prince Adam!

I guess it's about (tale as old as) time!

This one was almost a mission-impossible to do!
I couldn't figure out what I want to do with Adam's character in his torso portrait, I couldn't make up my mind if should stand to the side, the front, the back, should he be more attached to his beast side?! I had a lot of *pressure*. For starters - Adam was the first guy I ever felt attracted too. How can I put that into a drawing? Then there's the *pressure* of everyone of the fans.
Just look at these numbers --->

On a poll I've had here on DA on Dec, 2007 (wow has it been that long?) titled: "Disney Heroes - who would you like to see next?" - 755 deviants said Adam (human form of Beast from "Beauty and the Beast"

In a poll from last month, titled: "So, my TROY BOLTON portrait for the Disney Heroes Collection got a lot of people expressing their feelings about subjects like:" - 638 deviants said F*CK ALL THAT! I want Prince Adam! (Beast in human form)!!!

Eventually I felt like I had an epiphany of some sort of heaving Adam as 'just a person', leave alone the Beast part (for now) and focus on his human side, that he himself had just discovered again. He's kind of embraced heaving his portrait taken, but at the same time very proud to be there, knowing his new human form represents the journey he's been through, to become a whole person. He keeps a rose with him as a reminder of the beast he once was, in and out.

I wanted to have him standing to the side cause I think he has a stunning side view to his face - Thank you mister Glen Keane! and a great Roman/French body - Thank you Glen Keane again!

I had a great time doing this one, especially cause I could finally see him coming to life, and his hair was SO MUCH FUN to draw!

Sure hope all of you who voted for him will give him as much as love now that he's finally here.

Thanks to everyone who took part in the polls and expressed their thoughts and feeling - I really appreciate it!

:heart: David...
